Sailing and Surfing

Boasting a total of 300 sunny days a year Lake Neusiedl is the sunniest region in Austria. The shallow lake, which is no deeper than 1.8 metres at its deepest point, is regarded by professionals as one of the most fascinating sailing and surfing locations in Europe.

Ideal wind conditions for beginners, intermediates and professionals and the Mediterranean climate make Lake Neusiedl the favoured location for all sports lovers. School classes, active athletes and holiday guests alike enjoy trying their hand at surfing or sailing with the professional sailing and surfing schools.
